After having spent the last few weeks trying to understand my complex and ever changing world, I have finally taken time out to try to understand myself.
I need a logically coherent way of living, which doesn’t seem to be able to be achieved
So in between sunning myself on the Decking, I am concentrating on moving on with the WIPs in my ever increasing pile.
Oh, and I am going to be a Máthair Chríona ( gaelic for grandmother – meaning literally mother of the heart) again.. Joshua and Holly are expecting their first child, due March next year.
Even though I have five adorable grandchildren already, each one is a blessing and I am incredibly excited about the first “Phethean-Hubble” – I just hope this one sleeps a lot better than its Father and Uncle – for Holly’s sake
So I have lots of Baby Knitting, followed by Joshua’s Gardening Gillet – mostly spun up in piebald Jacob Wool – pattern now written and underway
Mr Odin’s Fishing Bodywarmer is also in the happy state of progress.
I have seriously committed a great boo boo here. In the chaos of the last five years, I have managed to lose the samples and details of this fantastic wool.
I know it was purchased as a roving from Wingham Wool in about 2011 (just before chaos entered our world. It was a limited edition blend, containing: three shades of blue, dark, medium and a beautiful combination of taupe/dark olive green, and light/dark grey. But that is where my knowledge stops.
So therefore it isn’t going to be repeatable – and 1kg (approx) whilst a goodly amount isn’t going to be enough to make a jumper for a 50” chest. But it will be enough for a bodywarmer with a shawl neckline to keep him warm when fishing.
Toby’s fishing gillet needs some more spinning done, and the new samples are now with me and that is a project for next week.
Whilst I am on a roll though, I have two skeins of 4 ply which have been winking at me now for a few months. I suspect it is going to be a very cold winter, so I have decided that I am going to knit a cowl – I have chosen Splice – as the two skeins will contrast each other well.
So having given you a brief glimpse into my chaotic headspace – I am off to continue my journey – as I am told “the Journey is the Reward” – I do so hope so…..x
